Alliance Digital Media and PolyKid to Launch Poi: Explorer Edition for Nintendo Switch™ on Oct. 23

Delightful 3D Platformer Will Feature Exclusive Content at Retail and Digital Stores

NEW YORK Sept. 6, 2017 – Alliance Digital Media has announced it will publish Poi: Explorer Edition, a special version of independent developer PolyKid’s whimsical 3D platformer, for Nintendo Switch™ on Oct. 23. Featuring new and exclusive content, the game will be available as a physical product at major retailers, as well as digitally via the Nintendo eShop, for $29.99.

Inspired by the cheerful classics of 3D platforming, Poi is an engaging adventure that follows two aspiring Master Explorers as they search the far reaches of the world for an old explorer’s lost medallions and unravel the mysteries of the Milky Way Globe. Journey to uncharted lands aboard your sky-ship, discover colorful worlds filled with curious creatures and surprises, and use your range of jumping abilities to collect over 100 challenging medallions.

Available only on Nintendo Switch™, Poi: Explorer Edition builds on that core experience with exclusive features, including more challenging boss battles, new character costumes, an unlockable soundtrack and digital art book, and Joy-Con motion control support.
